Judging process & categories

The 2020 Monaro Nationals judging Team has reviewed judging processes used at past Monaro national events as well as other national car events (eg. Summernats) to determine an efficient and effective process to judge upwards of 300 Monaros.

Judging this many cars will require considerable organisation and timetabling to ensure that all cars are properly assessed.  Your cooperation will be essential.

The Process

Entrants will need to Self-Scrutineer into the appropriate judging category BEFORE entering the event.

Judging will be conducted over 3 days with Preliminary and Final judging phases.

When you complete our on-line event registration, you will be required to select the appropriate judging category for your car so it is important that you are satisfied with the judging category to use prior to registering for the event.


This will ensure that your Monaro is entered into the correct judging category so that the Judging Team can create the judging timetable prior to your arrival at the event.

Included in the 2020 Monaro Nationals Judging Manual (see download link below) is a detailed flow chart that will guide you through a process to select the correct judging category for your Monaro. Once you have selected your judging category via the flow chart, you should read and thoroughly understand the category description details as you car will be judged against these criteria.

Your car details and the photo that you enter into our registration system will be assessed prior to the event by the Judging team.  The Judging Team may make recommendations to the entrant to change their judging category but it is ultimately the entrant’s decision.

Judging Timetable

Preliminary Judging (Day 1):      Thursday 22 October 

Preliminary Judging (Day 2):      Friday 23 October

Final Judging:                            Saturday 24 October

Time management will be a key element of the judging process.  Once event registration closes on 31st August 2020, the Judging Team will produce a time table for judging on the Thursday 22nd Oct and Friday 23rd.  Each entrant will be allocated a time slot.

Entrants who also enter in the Haunted Hills event will have their Preliminary Judging time prioritised to Thursday 22nd.

If an entrant cannot make their scheduled time they must contact the Judging Team via email to reschedule;

We expect this process will expedite the judging process and also avoid lengthy delays for entrants.   Judging will not be finalised until the end of the Show and Shine event on Saturday.
